I don't know if it's just me, but recently lipstick and I have not gotten along. My lips will be feeling good all day long and then the minute I decide to add a splash of color it all goes south. Chalk it up to changing seasons and dry skin? Maybe. Whatever the reason, I use two products to combat this issue:

Lip Scrub: There are so many varieties out there of lip scrub it's hard to mention just one. They range in price greatly, but they have one purpose: exfoliate all the crap off your lips. All the dead skin, peeling parts, and general seasonal dysfunction on your lips will be scrubbed away. Take a little tiny bit (think pinky fingernail) and scrub in circular motions. Current favorite? Sweet Lips by Lush. If you are feeling especially broke here is a recipe to make your own.

Aquaphor: If you are reading this and you don't own Aquaphor you need to shut down your computer and get to the drugstore. This petrolatum (read: vaseline) based ointment is meant for burns, scrapes, and other minor abrasions to your skin, but it absolutely takes the cake in lip care. It's the best lip balm $4 can buy and will soothe all the cracks that tend to shine thru this time of year. I put it on before lipstick for a smooth base and I lather it on before bed so I wake up with baby smooth lips.

Did you know?

That I have a beauty channel on YouTube? Yup, you read that right. I sit in front on a camera talking to no one about awesome products that I love. I upload 1 to 2 times a week {in a perfect world} and it's really fun for me! While my filming is super duper low budget and the lighting is always weird, this is something I love to do and something I would love for you to watch! Enjoy!
